Victoria is passionate about recycling and when she learnt that by 2012, Nespresso had sold more than 27 billion coffee pods worldwide (enough to encircle the equator 30 times) she decided to start collecting and up-cycling the aluminium Nespresso pods.
Victoria collects the capsules from local homes; cleans the pods (the coffee granules go in the garden) and then she makes the jewellery at her kitchen table.
Her coffee pod project shows the strong link between homes, coffee and reusing materials which would otherwise be thrown onto landfill.
Visit the cosy Fat Yarn Store to see the wonderful ways coffee pods can be up-cycled into handmade pieces of jewellery and accessories. Some items are for sale.
Meet the designer, Victoria, on Sundays.
ONLY OPEN WED-SUN 10am-4pm
